Winner of the 2011 Diamond Gem Award for Trade Book of the Year
In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial in the history of the Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.
Inspired by Kirkman's award-winning comic, this novel follows the events that transform family man Phillip into a half-crazed dictator known as the Governor in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Fred Berman's narration is smooth and keeps listeners engaged throughout this audio version. He develops solid, authentic-sounding voices for most of the book's characters, particularly the authoritative Phillip, and Brian, whose voice is soft with a hint of weakness. And while some secondary character sound like caricatures, Berman more than redeems himself via his excellent pacing. As the narrative moves into more pitched moments, Berman chooses pauses and projection with a great deliberateness, adding to the suspense and making the prose all the more impactful. A St. Martin's/Dunne hardcover.
Great story, slow is some spots but the ending was as surprising as it was twisted. All in all, a good book.
Haven't read any of the comics so didn't know what to expect. Has nothing to do with the storyline from the show just incase your expecting it kinda like I was. Overall the book is a must read. It's everything you expect from a zombie book though your basic survival and of course twists here and there that catch you off guard. Couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next one keep them coming.
Hurry and release!!!
I can't wait for this to be released, can't wait to know about the other side!
